WATCH: An Animated Guide to Fondling Your Balls to Check for Cancer

Okay, let’s make 2013 the year that you didn’t get testicular cancer! Or, at the very least, the year that you caught it early enough to treat.

There’s no guideline for how often you should perform a self-test. But why wouldn’t you? Your balls are right there, after all. You might as well give them a little rub. Several times a day if possible. Really get to know them.



Start by getting warm and relaxed, so your skin loosens up. A bath or a shower is a good opportunity to prepare. It’s also a good opportunity to get clean.

Hold your penis out of the way. And anyone else’s penises that happen to be down there, too.



Grab one of your balls in both hands and gently roll it between your thumb and forefinger of each hand.

You’re looking for a hard lump. If you find one, call a doctor.

Other warning signs:  One of your balls changing size from month to month, pain, or more fluid than is normal.



You can give your dick a little pat, too. Sure, why not. It’s been good today. It’s earned it.



And you can also help a friend do his inspection. Remember to be gentle.

Congratulations on fondling your way to better health! You are now an expert in balls. Well, human balls, at least. There are still other kinds of balls out there.

    I had testicular cancer. There was no lump, but one testicle just felt too different from the other. Thanks to my concerned boyfriend there was less than a month between the first time I saw a doctor for it and the operation to take the testicle out.
    Take everything down there serious, don´t wait too long.
    It´s one of the cancers that is cured easy when it´s caught early but can spread fast and be fatal when it´s caught late.
